Lisa Kelly, President 2021-2022

Welcome to the Upper Sandusky Rotary Club's website.  The club was chartered on June 28th, 1943 and led by President, Paul Stephan; Vice President, J.D. Blackford; Secretary-Treasurer, Earl Ulrich and Sergeant-at-Arms, George Denman.  Our motto, "Service Above Self" has been present in activities undertaken by this club and it's members since the day that the Toledo Club and Findlay Club laid the plans to start a club in Upper Sandusky.  From planting 2,000 trees around the recently built Wyandot Memorial Hospital (trees in 1952, hospital in 1950), to providing air conditioning units to cool hospital rooms (1953) to current day projects of building playgrounds in the local parks and school to working with other local service organizations to provide the very first Pavillion at the "new" Upper Sandusky Reservior.  There have been numerous local projects over the last 60+ years and these, of course, could be easliy overlooked by the enormous amounts of generosity and humanitarian aid that Rotary International has provided.  Rotary is one of the largest service organizations in the World and has been accredited with being the driving force behind erradicating Polio.  Although not completely gone from the world, it is well on it's way to becoming a thing of the past.  Rotary is so well received that it has been able to partner with The World Health Organization (WHO), the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Governments of countries around the world and many other organizations to provide immunizations, clean drinking water, humanitarian aid and literacy around the world.  Please enjoy the site and feel free to join us at a regular meeting at Special Occasions Catering every Monday at noon.
